    Any members of the clymb on here?

    I dunno if you guys have ever heard of this website, but it's called the clymb and it's a members only online site with crazy good deals. Right now they're selling cycling gear for a huge discount right now. I'll put up an invite link if you guys are interested but I don't want people to think its spam.

    I was on there for a while, but i left because of mediocre deals and tons of spam. Everything they sell is available for less in other places on the 'net, or it's sold out.

    I pretty much only buy things when I build up money thru invites. I've never actually paid for anything

    Ah, didn't know you could do that! Seems like a pretty good deal then.

    I've bought a few things from there, but mostly wait until I have credits.

    If you invite someone and they purchase something, you get 25 bucks towards their site

    I'm actually thinking bout getting the crank brothers bars on there right now. They'd basically be free

    I belong to the clymb and have bought a few things at 50% off usually. Pretty simple. As for stuff being sold out, you have to check the email they send you right away because some of the items are of limited quantity.its great when you stumble on that one thing you have been looking to buy anyway, then boom, there it is at half off or more.

    To me this sound like a pyramid scheme. You get money if you invite others.

    A pyramid scheme is something very different. It's equivalent to groupon where it's based around impulse buying.

    Maybe there's a way to game it with fake accounts though?

    like the site or hate it (it is a generic spam generating godaddy website )

    go ahead and try to game any web site. if you are very lucky they won't have a Fraud team investigating your every click, and send the Staties knocking. godaddy as well as a bunch of other online presences in fact do identify and chase down fraud and have software that pretty much brings suspicious activity right up front and center in hourly and daily reports.

    source...what I do for a living. I really don't know clymb but it is pretty much a replica of steep and cheap (another endless spam and click site) but I do know that trying to screw with someones web site or commit fraud pretty much means jail time. and suggesting to do this makes you a tool

    ^ xff

    and if you mask xff, all ISP's provide logs for the law enforcement peeps.
    so, no. you cannot ever hide unless you own every last piece. and you don't

    most sites deny untrusted xff anyhow


    to stop me derailing this thread i will sum it up: go ahead and use clymb but there are better spamless deals elsewhere, and do you want your funds going primarily to ad revenue click-interest, or a hard working shop owner ?

    and I am one of those 'on the inside' when it comes to internet security, so efforts to amaze me with 'Oh but I can do XYZ and not be discovered' well...no you can't. you can make it harder, but then the handcuffs come knocking

    I think you're first reply is spot on, and trying to game theclymb is a really bad idea. The main problem being that you'd still probably want to use the credit you got from fake referrals.

    Now mind you, I'm just having a little fun killing time (and completely derailing the thread in the process). Anyways, how's this?

    A) Unsecured wifi (i.e. drive around until you find one)
    B) spoofed wifi hardware stuff (MAC, not sure what else)
    C) Secure connection to Eastern Europe, Russia, Eastern Asia VPSs that activate the referral (curl or similar)
    D) oh well, now you have some cash in your account so you're still tied to it. Conceivably, you use a foreign VPS to do your buying too, and ship it to a PO box.

    All in all quite a pain in the ass for a pair of socks and an enduro helmet. Plus the feds are still waiting at the post office.

    Edit: the more I think about it, the more stupid this post seems.

    Well your appeal to authority isn't making this anymore fun.

    just know that NO, you cannot hide and please don't make suggestions that web sites can be scraped, hacked, ddos...etc, because it perpetuates a theme that successful e-crime can be gotten away with. false. if you are of interest to someone with the access, you are gonna have a bad time.

    i'm a member of 'the clymb'

    I have gotten some great deals from them on crankbros stuff. I got carbon 700mm bars at less than half price. Killer deal. Love them. A few other things here and there as well...

    I give it a look now and then. Right now the cycling stuff on offer is a bit thin/stale. Nothing new added recently.

    also caught my eye recently is some travel deals that looked cool. mostly just dreaming... guided mtb trip to sunny spain anyone?

    Oh... there's a competitor to Clymb called Left Lane Sports. You have to sign up for a membership but it's free. Also some really good cycling deals here. I got my POC Trabec Race helmet here wicked cheap.
